Buffalo Creek

Located an hour west of Denver, the Buffalo Creek Recreation Area features smooth, rolling singletrack and lots of variety. The diverse trail system meanders through areas unaffected by fire, as well as surreal, barren landscapes still rebounding from past forest fires. These are among the best trails in the greater Denver region. You will enjoy mountain views, majestic rock formations, great downhills, smooth roller coasters, and almost all singletrack!

Below are the trail maintenance work dates for 2017 at Buffalo Creek.  Please make sure to click on the links below (to Yazda) and register for each date that you are interested in. Once registered, you will be notified of any changes or cancellations.

COMBA looks forward to your continued support of the Buffalo Creek Trails!
